Moving Again

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

We’ll be moving to an as-far-as-we-can-tell permanent location in the coming weeks.  Make sure to wave if you see someone biking a load of boxes and furniture over to the corner of Scott and Fible.

Many Thanks to the Rot Riders (home compost pick-up crew) for letting us use their bike trailers for the move.

Moving by Bicycle

Saturday, June 12th, 2010

Finally!  We’re in the actual house that is the Kirksville Permaculture Education Center!  It’s been a hectic last few weeks, but the end to the move is in sight.

Things would have been much smoother had it not been for the lead abatement/encapsulation that we did on the windows and garage.  The paint was flaking off and was an environmental health hazard to many lifeforms, so we spent over 120 work hours getting that under control.

Then- We moved.  By bicycle!

Here’s the proof.

By the end of the moving, we were testing the capacity of the four trailer bike-train.  Successes all around!

Many thanks go to Will, Jonathan, Eric, Gabe, Amelia, and Jon, and for the use of the trailers built by the Rot Riders and Eric and  the 700lb capacity trailer from the Possibility Alliance.

Piano

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

We moved a piano into the future KPEC on Monday evening.  It came from about 10 miles past Newark, and I certainly understand how heavy a piano is now.  There were five of us lifting, and we couldn’t have done it without all five of us.

It’s out of tune, but not too badly considering how long its been since its last tuning, and three of the keys aren’t striking the string.  If you know of anyone who can tune a piano and fix the three notes, we know someone who will barter a professional Swedish massage for the work.
